First one is Pot. Hawaiian Prominence 'America' AM/AOS
and second is Pot. Love Passion 'Island Romance'.

Yes....I have a thing for bright colored Catt's.

The second one I bought maybe 5 years ago as a seedling potted in a coconut shell. It had completely overrun the shell last year and there was no way I has getting it out of that shell intact so I just buried the whole thing in bark. Seems to be working OK.

Excellent vibrant colours in those flowers. The flouro effect of the violet coloured one with yellow in the lip is really great. Great shapes.

The Hawaiian Prominence absolutely glows in real life. Its one of the few complex hybrids that I really like.

Thanks. I describe it to people as a "hot magenta".
The picture really does not do it justice.
